time limiting the kids!

  butter fingers 19:47 19 Aug 2006

Hi everybody. I would like to cut down the hours that the kids spend on the computer without having to always shout and scream. ie let the computer do it! Does anyone know of software that would monitor their time logged on and hopefully shut down programs, log off or similar so I don't have to say "you've been on for four hours give your eyes a rest"

Thanks Jackcoms, plenty there to have a look at and all shareware which should be cheaper!

Sigh.. threaten your offsprings with NO internet whatsoever if they don't conform! Explain that you have the power to excommunicate them forever from the net if they don't behave. Have one administrator account and delete all others. Show them you mean buisiness and you have had enough! From now on you are the LAW as far as the web is concerned. If they want an account for themselves they must TOW THE LINE!!!

Failing that of course skidzy's idea looks good....

I found walking into the room and pulling out the plug was fairly efficient!

"I found walking into the room and pulling out the plug was fairly efficient!"

But not the most sensible way to shut down a PC.

True - but it shut the kid down!!
